What is a Mutual of Omaha Reverse Mortgage?

Rick May can help you decide if it is right for you.

In 1988, President Reagan signed the modern FHA-insured reverse mortgage program into law to help “property-rich,” but cash-stressed senior homeowners finance their retirement and continue to live in their homes. This way, they get to use their equity – their own money – immediately instead of having to sell what has become an unaffordable home. 

Many senior homeowners share a similar challenge: insufficient income or investment cash flow for things they want or need: medical bills, everyday living expenses, a much-needed vacation, a new car, and more. Rick May understands these challenges and appreciates helping seniors accomplish their goals and meet their needs. He’s been doing it for years!

reverse mortgage, also known as a Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM), is a home loan only for senior homeowners, age 62+. With a reverse mortgage, you’ll enjoy a more comfortable retirement without mortgage payments and have regular access to your hard-earned existing home equity without having to sell your home. Rick explains how a reverse mortgage works here, but first…

Imagine getting these remarkable benefits of a Mutual of Omaha reverse mortgage: 

    • Remain in your own home with no house payments as long as the borrower(s) or a surviving spouse lives in the home or until you sell it.
    • Access your equity – tax-free: take funds in a lump sum, a line of credit, or in structured monthly payments.
    • Use your equity for literally any purpose at all: supplement your income, pay for healthcare, buy a new car, make home improvements, invest it, or… You name it. It’s your money, so you can do anything you want to do with it! 
    • Maintain your financial independence without needing help from children, etc.

You can even use a reverse mortgage for jumbo loans for homes valued up to $10,000,000 to refinance a current mortgage or to purchase a new home. If you don’t already have a mortgage, getting a reverse mortgage enables you to take advantage of its benefits.
